Cohousing

Experience the benefits of a safe and supportive village-like neighbourhood

Cohousing is an alternative approach that seeks to marry a need for community, while providing privacy of a traditional home.

Our vision for Lost Lake Cohousing is a a  neighbourhood of privately owned apartments in addition to extensive common areas. 

Imagine managing your own community with neighbours, sharing work,  celebrations, and possibly meals.  Meet regularly to solve problems, and plan activities!

Locally, there are cohousing communities in Courtenay, Nanaimo, Sidney and Sooke as well as many more on the mainland.  Many of us are part of the Canadian Cohousing Network.

One hundred and fifty cohousing communities have been built across the United States and more in Europe, including Denmark, where cohousing originated as a modern form of village and mutually supportive community.
